Scabbard Chape From The Kievan Rus! (Find, Photos+)

The snow just recently got off the ground, which already was there for three months, while I wanted to go out with my Fisher F44 detector.

My chosen field was already dry enough to walk on it...

“Treasure” Rings (Diggers Story)

Here we have another quite interesting story sent to us by a digger. Enjoy! My story is about the previous seasons. It is somehow romantic and somewhat mystical.

Garrett Z-Lynk: First field test (works as it should!)

I left recently on a detecting trip, and finally opened the season! The dirt is already good in the forest, and more or less in the field. In the field there is another problem, if you dig a little deeper the ground is like stone, not very convenient to dig. And so, what did I have with me? As always – the “carrot” pointer ( the AT Pro Pointer), the metal...
